HONOLULU –

In conjunction with federal, state and county emergency management personnel, the Hawaii State Department of Education’s (HIDOE) facilities team and school administrators are working through the weekend to prepare most schools to open on Monday, Aug. 27.

HIDOE staff who are helping to operate public shelters at schools will conduct formal walk-throughs of facilities to ensure safety and readiness for students and staff.

Due to damage from the storm and brush fires, the following Maui campuses will be closed for students on Monday, Aug. 27:

King Kamehameha III Elementary

Princess Nahienaena Elementary

Teachers and staff are expected to report, and those four schools will reopen for students on Tuesday, Aug. 28.  
 

Public charter schools across the state will reopen Monday after being closed for two to three days due to the threat posed to the state by Hurricane Lane. Thirty-six charter schools statewide serve more than 11,000 public school students.
